Site, Social Media Sabbatical

Hey, ma man. I've been on a glorious blogging, social media sabbatical which will continue thru 1/5 but I wanted to briefly break said sabbatical to say thanks to you for using some of your valuable time to read posts on the site, listen to my radio shows or podcasts. You're the best! I hope your holiday season has been (and continues to be) fantastic. You deserve it. Brochacho.

I have big podcast, website and radio plans for 2014. Big, big. Jerry.

 

My best of 2013 music list will be posted on 1/5. Really. Probably. There's an outside possibility.

Queens Of The Stone Age To Appear On Austin City Limits (Video)

Hey. I love Queens Of The Stone Age. Their latest record 'Like Clockwork' is brilliant and will be making an appearance on my top albums of 2013 list (which I hope to actually compile sometime before 2016). I'm sure that's what they were aiming for when they made it. Mission accomplished fellas. Queens will be kicking off the second half the 39th season of the fantastic Austin City Limits.  Enjoy the teaser and buy the new Queens record if you haven't. Also, see them live should you get the opportunity. DO it.

The Most Recorded Christmas Songs

I have a rule about Christmas music and it's pretty simple: I won't listen to your Christmas music unless you're dead and The Charlie Brown Christmas album is the greatest holiday album ever. EVER.  I've discussed it before as well as my allowance of Tony Bennett's Christmas music to be included in my playlist because he is super old and still damn cool. Time Magazine has posted a pretty cool, interactive info graphic showing a large selection of Christmas classics and how many times they've been recorded. You'll be interested to know that Little Drummer Boy has been recorded 213 times. 213 times. I will be playing every one of them on an upcoming edition of my radio show. Jingle bells has only been recorded 254 times which is only an ONLY because it's ONLY 41 more times than Little Drummer Boy. The ALWAYS creepy 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus' has been recorded only 19 times. Yes. That is 19 times too many.

 

Click to see how many times your favorite Christmas song has been recorded but DO NOT record any of them yourselves.

This Is How A Shark Will Kill You (Science Corner)

shark

 

I'm not afraid of sharks at all when I'm on dry land. Much like my fearlessness when it comes to bears whilst frolicking in the ocean. Oh, how i Like to frolic in the ocean. In fact, I like to stand just out of reach and mock the sharks just to prove I'm not afraid. They HATE it. It's really hilarious. Unless you're a shark. Sharks represent really the ONLY situation in which Aquaman can feel anything but lame. He's the worst super hero ever. He knows it. I think he's accepted it at this point. Superman can fly and stop bullets with his chest, Aquaman can make dolphins do tricks. Or can he? Maybe the dolphins would be doing that stuff anyway and they just humor the poor bastard. They're creepily smart and not to be trusted.

Anyway...sharks. This is how sharks PREFER to kill you. I mean, they WILL kill you in other ways if need be, this is the PREFERRED method.

Sharks prefer to swim up behind humans, according to new research. Cowards. Researchers from the Shark Research Institute in Florida say their study findings back up what divers and surfers have been saying for years-  sharks like to approach people from the rear. Don't make that pervy, man. Really? That's disgusting. YOU are disgusting.

These same researchers claim the sharks aren't NECESSARILY going to kill you- they're just curious. Curious what you will taste like. Up to this point scientists weren't sure if sharks could differentiate the front or back of a human being which means sharks is so stupid OR our faces look similar to butts.

Regardless of all this stuff, Aquaman still sucks.

You've just been Scienced. Ma man.

Google Is Assembling A Robot Army – Science Corner (Video)

Remember when Google was the fresh new company started by dudes in a garage and they were super awesome? Well, they're evil now. It was bound to happen. I mean, once all of that money starts piling up around you, evil becomes easier and easier to propagate. Eventually you're living in a you shaped secret mountain lair, and commissioning on piece suits with your logo emblazoned across the chest.

The proof is in the incredibly creepy robot video.  They've just purchased the company that makes these things. If you don't think it's creepy, it will be MUCH creepier when you're running for your life from one of these things while the Google nerds laugh maniacally (and NERD-ily). Nerds.

Antibacterial Soap Doesn’t Work. George Carlin Was Right. (Video)

First of all, the video clip is from the HBO Special, George Carlin : You're All Diseased. I don't want to get sued. You can buy it here. You should. It's brilliant. I am not a fan of stand up comedy in general because, like most things, most comedians are mediocre and not worth my valuable time. I'm a HUGE fan of Louis CK, Marc Maron (and his EXCELLENT podcast) and anyone who knows me even a little bit knows my affinity for Jerry Seinfeld but the greatest stand up ever is George Carlin. He wasn't even really a stand up. He was more of a philosopher who said f**k a lot. A LOT.

Anyway, new research shows antibacterial soap is essentially bunk. It not only is not more effective than standard soap and water, it can actually be hazardous and lead to bacterial resistance and interfere with hormone levels. That doesn't mean you shouldn't wash your hands though, turd hands. Just wash them with soap. And sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star while you wash so you know you've washed them long enough. Oprah told me.

Now enjoy the genius of Carlin. Also, know that this clip is LOUSY with foul language. It's almost exclusively foul language.
